I ordered the flyball launcher over a year ago for my 50+ senior women’s softball team. For new players who were a little afraid of a softball, we started out with soft foam balls to hone their targeting and catching skills, then we progressed to our standard 11” softball. The repetition of this drill improved their field performance and confidence. Seasoned players also found this drill helpful because we could adjust trajectory and height easily for them. All-in-all, the flyball launcher is an invaluable tool for player development.

The product works great, I can already see a difference!
This is such a great concept and I’m glad you thought to create it. I had tried a similar slingshot from Easton but it wasn’t nearly as good (I think it’s been discontinued).
The Flyball Launcher is a giant baseball slingshot that is more efficient and less tiring than a fungo. It can launch pop flies, ground balls, and line drives as hard or as soft as you’d like, in any direction, with minimal effort. I was able to launch about 9 pop flies / minute with this device.
The Flyball Launcher has been so helpful to me. Being an outfielder this helps with adjusting to the ball, getting behind the ball, and getting a good read on it. I definitely recommend purchasing this item!!
Quick set up. Easy to use. Perfect for all practices.
I ordered a fly ball launcher a little over a year ago and received it promptly. We have a dozen grandkids and they range in ages from 17 to 4. We love “playing ball” with them, but with such a range in age and capability, it’s hard to get them all involved simultaneously. The Fly Ball Launcher works wonderfully for this as I can make the “fly balls” as difficult or as easy as I want. The little ones get so excited when they can catch the balls just like their big cousins. A really neat and simple invention. Good quality materials. I leave the launch posts up permanently on the fence and just take down the rubber slingshot for the winter.
I’m a senior softball women’s coach at Sun City Peachtree in Griffin GA. (A Del Webb over 55 active community). I ordered this to help train my outfielders. Several of our other coaches saw your Flyball Launcher and thought it was a great investment. I’m glad they have ordered a launcher. Have looked for a training aid like this for a few years. Totally satisfied with the results.
It’s awesome! Fast, efficient, and very useful!
My name is Nina Tamez, and I play middle infield at Alvin Community College for the softball team. The fly ball launcher is so useful in everyday practice. This product can produce ground balls, fly balls, and line drives. It is especially helpful when you’re running low on staff as it is an easy, simple one man utensil.
We used the launcher tonight for the first time and it was awesome!!! We will be ordering another one for sure. Have a good evening!
My daughter and I finally got out last Friday. I still haven’t mastered control of where they land, though the launcher worked perfectly! The more I practice, the better I’ll get. I appreciate all of your efforts, and even more so that you designed this in the first place. I am confident that not only will she get better this summer, we’ll have some fun in the process!
The launcher is really great. Our coaches have been really liking it and the girls love it because of its consistency with Flyball for practice.
